Bethenny Frankel

I NEVER Lied About 'Skinnygirl'

9/6/2011 2:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bethenny Frankel insists she NEVER misled the public about the ingredients in her Skinnygirl Margarita cocktail ... despite the fact it was recently pulled from Whole Foods.

Frankel just posted a statement on her website saying, "We would not sell anything that I don’t personally drink. I’m a natural foods chef and health is a top priority for me and my family."

She adds, "The Skinnygirl Margarita is made with natural ingredients and its label is consistent with U.S. federal regulations, which is why it is carried in stores nationwide and continues to fly off the shelves."

Bethenny concludes, "I built my brand on trust and honesty. I don’t take lightly obvious attempts to put my integrity in question. I will always answer your questions and concerns directly and truthfully."

As TMZ previously reported, Whole Foods yanked the product from its shelves recently ... claiming the drink contains a preservative that is NOT a natural ingredient.

Frankel told The Post, "I'm not making wheatgrass here. If I could put an agave plant and some limes on a shelf I would. [The Skinnygirl Margarita] is as close to nature as possible, while still being a shelf-stable product."

Have you tried that awful Skinny drink. What a waste of money and it is really really
terrible. I must have lost my mind putting more money into something Bethenny created.
Shame on me

This woman is the most annoying person around, next to Kate Gosselin she has the biggest mouth around. Frankly, Frankel who CARES! You love to portrait yourself as healthy but you look and act soo obsessed with your weight, that you come off anorexic. Get real and admit you dont know exactly everything that is going on with this skinny grl line.

Sounds like it is Whole Foods loss not Bethenny's. She already sold it for millions to Jim Beam and has shown she is one smart savvy business woman. I can pretty much guarantee that most if not all of the nasty comments about Bethenny are posted by Jill and her cohorts who are raging with jealousy over Bethennys success.
